BRP added a new member to the Can-Am Defender family with the new 2018 Can-Am Defender MAX HD8.

This is what BRP calls a market point-of-entry model. It comes in with a retail price of $12,399 without giving up the features found on the other Defender MAX models.

What makes the Can-Am Defender MAX HD8 different is its HD8 V-Twin engine that produces 50 horsepower and 50 lb-ft of torque. Like its bigger siblings, the engine of the Defender MAX HD8 is paired with the PRO-TORQ transmission, which features a Quick Response System (QRS) that is designed to enhance low-speed riding.

Other features include 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires wrapped around painted black cast-aluminum wheels and VERSA-PRO front and rear bench seating.

The 2018 Can-Am Defender MAX HD8 is available in base trim ($12,399), DPS ($14,699) and XT ($17,199)
